    Interested to see how your hyrgro progresses—I want some but not too keen on CO2 yet...

    Looking really neat for such a little tank. You've really chosen your hardscape to maximise the available space to look bigger...

    Looks cool, I want to do something simular in my 30cm cube, use some driftwood rather than the masses of stone i have... where did you get the wood from in Perth?

    So far so good man, the growth isn't as quick as the hygro in my 4ft with CO2, but it's still pretty compact and has a slightly greener colouring.

    This was my first non stone scape too, was heaps of fun playing with different plants no co2 etc. I grabbed the wood from AGP and Vebas - it's pretty cheap malaysian driftwood. I had boiled it for like 2 weeks though.

    Man check out scape 23 (the semi emersed cube) in the LCA scaping comp... That's the next type i want to try! so freaking cool!

    Cheers, will have to head to AGP and Vebas on the weekend to check out the stock, I am thinking of doing a blackwater scape so mite not need to boil the wood. I have seen that scape int he LCA comp, its very cool so detailed / so many plants, perhaps i could merge blackwater and emersed growth haha

    looks great! I will be setting up a low tech 30cm cube for a beta and shrimp soon and need all the inspiration I can get. I was almost going to get the nemo light but went for the up aqua pro z, how do you like your light?

    Frank's got some great colour on him

    Did your hygro die off or did you remove it?
